E. S. Woods once said, “A vacation helps to relieve stress and boredom, gives us a change of scenery, provides us with adventure, and helps to bring us closer to the people in our lives.” No truer words have been spoken. As the wheels of work churn, and we’re caught in the whirlwind of meetings and schedules, sometimes a getaway is all we need to hit the reset button.
Chikkamagaluru, a quaint little hill station atop the Western Ghats, has long been hailed as one of the most beautiful weekend getaways from the bustling city life of Bengaluru or Mysuru. But over the years, the idea of a Chikkamagaluru escapade has become hackneyed. Just north of Chikkamagaluru, lies another gem of Karnataka. Shivamogga, ensconced in the scenic backdrop of the Western Ghats, has a plethora of unique experiences to offer; it’s a tapestry woven by the confluence of history, culture, and nature. Shivamogga has so much to offer that it even boasts an airport of its own.

And the crowning jewel of Shivamogga is the Kimmane Luxury Golf Resort. Experience a sojourn in unparalleled luxury, in a magnificent resort with acres of lush greenery, serenaded by the hills and located in convenient proximity to everything Shivamogga has to offer.
